Retirement Assets

Supporters may also give all or part of their retirement assets (IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension, etc.) which may otherwise be taxed at greater rates if left to other beneficiaries. By designating the Educational Foundation as the beneficiary on their retirement assets, donors can reduce their tax burden and share a larger portion with family and loved ones.

Real Estate & Non-Traditional Investments

Real estate (e.g. houses, condominiums, commercial property, farmland, rental property, undeveloped land, etc.) and other, non-traditional investments (e.g. partnership interests) can be given the Educational Foundation after review and advice of legal counsel and upon approval of the Foundation Board of Directors. 

Please contact Dan Hartmann, President & CEO of the Educational Foundation, for additional information. 

Personal Property

Tangible personal property (e.g. works of art, jewelry, collections, automobiles, manuscripts, books, etc.) can be given to the Educational Foundation, either to display or sell, and receive a tax deduction for the appraised value.
